University Express - Crisis in Ukraine

06:00 pm - 12/02/2015

@ Amherst Senior Center

370 John James Audubon Pkwy
Buffalo NY  14228



Despite being one and a half years since the protests in Kiev began, the tensions in Ukraine have yet to be resolved. The Russian annexation of Crimea, coupled with their build-up of troops and continuing violence, has resulted in the collapse of relations between Russia and the West. What are the roots of this crisis? What are the responses and alliances of the current leadership in Ukraine? What is the role of the U.S., Putin, and NATO in the future of Ukraine? The instructors will share their experiences as observers for several elections in Ukraine.

Instructor: Yuri Hreshchyshyn, President, Ukrainian-American Civil Center of Buffalo, and Greg Olma, observer for 2014 Ukraine elections; former Erie County Legislator and current Erie County Deputy Commissioner of Parks

Wednesday, December 2nd - 6 p.m.
